Tecno, one of the smartphone company is here again with a new droid pad tablet for their customers. The new Tecno 8H, a new 8-inch android device comes with an amazing battery of 5100 mAh and probably this is the first device from Tecno to run on Android 5.0 Lollipop. While seeing the device spec I was surprised that Tecno is till existing despite some new introduction of smartphones to the market and now I think Tecno is back to make changes in the technology market.

  2. Hi dear.

    Like amazon , ebay etc

    Thanks

    • Hi Mobashir, I don't have any seller selling the device in middle east but it's available for purchase. You can check amason and ebay for it.

  3. This Techno 8H Droidpad 8 is awesome! Pls, spot where I Would buy it in Ibadan in Oyo State. And tell me the actual time it would be much available in the city of Ibadan.Ogunrinola pls tell me its actual price presently.

    • Hi Abel, the device is not yet available in Nigeria. We would update the post once it's available.
      Thanks for stopping by.

      • Anaturuchi

        You are not right by saying it is not available in Nigeria. It is available on Jumia.com.ng

        • Its not yet available while I checked but you can comment the url if u find it there.

  4. Hi Hiidee!Some other specifications stated that Tecno 8h has no WiFi hotspot. Pls tell me is that true or not? If yes does it support downloaded WiFi hotspot from Google play store?Pls, tell me I'm waiting for your response!

    • Just confirmed from Jumia customer care and they said the device lacks the Hotspot but they didn't finalize about the ability to use third party hotspot.

  5. Hi Hiidee ! Some other specifications stated that Techno 8H Droidpad 8 has no WiFi hotspot. I am asking you now ,could it support downloaded WiFi hotspot from Google play store or it has built in WiFi hotspot as you stated here on this site?Pls,Hiidee tell me the truth!

    • Hi Abel the device doesn't have built in wifi Hotspot and possibly it may allow installation of Hotspot app from playstore and might not work.

  6. Tecno 8H Droipad 8 Android Tablet Tecno 8H Tablet also known as Droipad 8 Tablet secretly hits the jumia online store. Though we know about tecno releasing a Tablet device through a chat with the deputy Manager but not so soon. Looking at The Tecno 8H (aka. Droidpad 8) for the first time, you will think this is HTC one M8 or M9 because of the body/design. This is amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  7. pakristo

    Got the tab ystrday from jumia and I can say no mobile device has ever had d kind of speaker the 8h comes with couple with wifi hotspot,fm radio,OTG function,OTA update option available,sleak design dat looks like htc one etc.I reserve my comment,wen u get d tab u will write more dan me n d price s cheap for ds device bliv me.

    • Are you sure that the wifi Hotspot is there, check well man.

  8. Where to buy Tecno 8H in Ibadan except online business?

    • Hi Abel, you can check shops at Iwo Road side but its more preferably to buy online from Jumia.

  9. Hiidee! Is there Jumia office in Ibadan if it is available. Pls tell me its full address I beg you.

    • You would order what you want to buy and the company would ship it to their office at Ibadan, you can only collect if you have ordered before. The office is located at Bodija around Favos bus stop. The company is currently using a rented flat but I think they should be considering plans to open bigger and more befitting office considering the large number of orders emanating from Ibadan.
      Full Address: 1, Ibrahim Taiwo Street, Off Favos Road, New Bodija Estate, Ibadan IBADAN-BODIJA Close to the Landmark: Favos junction, Joanis Guest House.

  10. Omenga

    Pls, what is the screen resolution and dpi of the tab?

  11. Hiidee hi! Teach me to order Techno 8H from Jumia office. My town is not included in jumia website when I checked it.How can open account with jumia.I'm waiting for you .

    • Visit jumia.com.ng and register. After registration come back here and click buy now link below the post. You would be taking to Jumia tecno 8H page and click on BUY NOW button. fill all details include your town information, state and any other required. Continue till you see order received. Feel free to ask any question.

  12. Ucee

    Mr. Abel, i have already ordered 2 in error. If u r interested, contact me so that u can pay and collect the other one ASAP. Am at ring rd ibadan.

  13. tony

    pls does the tab make voice calls and would you have me buy it rather than G9

    • YES, the tab can make voice call and are you talking about Tecno G9 or what?

    • The device is good than the G9 but the G9 has Hotspot while 8H doesn't.

      • bro the Tecno 8h has hotspot , don't be mislead I bought mine few days ago and I must give kudos to Tecno for this new innovation. Check your phone settings click other u will see there tethering and hotspots together. My only concern of this product is that is too weity and the music sound is not good enough though the price for this tab worth it less than $200!

  14. Chidi

    I love TECNO Phone somuch I have been patronising them since 2007 till now,but I discover that they have not meet up to what I source in huawei p8max it 6.8inch and it spec& features it so superb I like such phone but in TECNO product how which TECNO can produs this kind of phone and name it phantom z1 by November 2015.

  15. I just bought this device few days ago, I found it very good compared to the Galaxy tab 4 . The resolution is great. My problem now is the music player not loud and good enough. I appreciate Tecno. I advice people to buy it. I bought mine in Nigeria Calabar

    • Wow... thanks Emmanuel for sharing your experience with the great tecno device.

  16. Kayla

    I got mine two days ago.. It has a Hotspot... It's a rumour that it doesn't have. It's an awesome tablet. The speakers are just too powerful. Displays are so bright and not blurry like G9. I am only trying to figure out how to screenshot

    • To take screenshots just press the volume down button and power button at same time for little seconds.

  21. King Austin

    @HADHARM, is it possible to swap my Infinix Note with the Tecno H8?
    comments from you guys... thank you.

    • Hi Austin, I don't think that would be possible but only if the person using the Tecno H8 needs the infinix hot note. But there are some instance you would add more money to your hot note to get the H8.

  22. obiba

    Am confused about d whole product, some say itz single sim, other say itz dual, some say the speakers are loud, other say it is not loud so now who is telling us the truth???

    • I have a friend who uses this 8H device, so far so good, his comments have been positive. He tried convincing me to get this but I'm chilling for the Camon. I can't manage the 8H's screen size.

  23. Bouqui

    • What have you done before it goes completely off?
      Is the device rooted or not?

  30. fred

    please my techno 8h show unfortunately weather has stopped, what can be a problem, what then solution

    • There is just a slight problem with weather app connecting to internet just restart your device and all would be back.

  31. PRINCzee

    I have been using the device for more than a month now, and I strongly believe the info I'll be dropping are fairly genuine. First about the sound of the speaker, I have two friends that uses the techno g9, while ones own speaker is loud, the other is not even though both device are the same model,so I think is one thing u'll find varrying in the same techno devices.
    I didn't have to root my device to use the glo 3gb bis subscription bcos I just used the mtk engineering app to change my imei,and it worked, having used the subscription twice now and browsed with the tab,I tink according to the specs it is only restricted to 3g network.
    I believe that the duration of every device is user dependent,i haven't experienced my fone turning off at anytime,so I would to say that u guys be careful what u put or install into ur device least u brick it,check if its comparable first I guess.
    It definitely has WiFi hostspot and I've used it over and over and over again.
    I love the device and if I would use a device again and again it'll be the techno 8h

    • Wow Thanks Princzee for the first great comment here. I agree bricking the phone depends on rooting and what apps have been install on the device. You really highlighted some points in the comment.
      Have a nice day.

      • Daniel b

        Please wat can I do to my 8h d screen used to hang den if I leave it more Dan an hour it will work well again n I bought it in about 5days ago or sud I return it?

        • That is serious, just a new device. I guessed you overload the phone with Apps and games that consume high RAM space just reduce them.

  32. Joel

    Pls PRINCzee do u use your phone to make calls?

  33. Div

    Thanks a lot for the info guys

  34. The new Tecno Droidpad H8 is a superb machine. Browsing & call reception are great. The audio & visual sound are exceptional. It is a clear difference between powerbike and okay. Wish I have come across it earlier.

    However I observed that attempting to charge it with a generator or inverter is one hell of a challenge. It charges at a snail speed. But plug it into electricity and it powers itself like an automobile throttle. Interestingly once fully charged, the battery lasts me for 2 days in spite of heavy browsing, watching of clips and non-stop music.

    As I said, I wish I had come in contact with it earlier. I simply love my droidpad!

  35. taiwo

    Comment...guys d droid pad is great,d 3g download fast like jet,and another special thing about this fone is dat it as strong network and dra?g network from very angle. so superb

  36. Kim

    • Hi Kim, to screenshot on the Tecno 8H droipad, press the volume down button + power button at the same time.

  37. Ohene Asante

    There is a star at the status bar and i don't know how it gets there please help me remove it.

    • Did you have the twitter app installed? If yes then it should be the one showing the star. But if not try to open the tray and click on the star and see where it link to.

  38. Amos Afful

    Hi,my techno droid pad 8H is not working again after I switched it off and went out for 10 hours. Any idea of a solution please?

  39. Ummi

    I don't recommend this product. Mine started having problem less than a month from when I bought it. It goes off just like that won't come ON till days after with low battery. Took it back to Tecno for repairs and uptill nw its having the same problem. I regret buying the tablet. Disappointed in Tecno too.

  40. ABDULLAHI

    please Tecno8H is for sale. call this number for any purpose 08032334154

  41. Olatayo Olanrewaju

    Hi Hidee, TECNO 8H is amazing and awesome my experience. But I have a challenge using USB to print with the device.

  42. Can this device handle multitasking? Won't want to get a device that drags and needs constant rebooth.

  43. charity ahiaba

    my techno 8h was great, until less than 4 months of purchase, the screen won't work properly. When i press one thing another appears and looks like it is the same for two friends i bought it with. The screen was not very "smart" from the beginning anyway. takes sometime before what you press appears. is it the sensor?? or something else?

    • I guess it was not properly produced. You can take it to tecno calcare center for repair.

  44. prince ewa

    can I upgrade my tecno 8h to 5.1

    • Hi Price, Tecno H8 cannot be upgraded to Android 5.1 as at now.
